Born just prior to the early '90s rise of drum'n'bass, Belgian producer Boris Daenen nonetheless rooted his sound in the form. As Netsky, he quickly became one of the most noted producers of modern drum'n'bass. In 2009 alone, he issued several 12" singles on labels like Talkin Beatz and Liq-weed Ganja. During a more prolific 2010, he linked with London Elektricity's London, England-based Hospital Records and released a self-titled album that showcased his ability to switch between rigorous dancefloor tracks and full-blown songs with guest vocalists. Daenen was comparatively less active across 2011 and 2012, though he did release more 12" material for Hospital, as well as the full-length 2. He also surprised fans and earned plaudits by debuting a full live band, a rarity among electronic music producers. By then, he was an in-demand remix producer; he reworked Miike Snow's "Black and Blue," Audio Bullys' "Only Man," Pendulum's "Witchcraft," Swedish House Mafia's "One," Plan B's "Recluse," Jessie J's "Nobody's Perfect," and Rusko's "Everyday," among several others. Daenen signed to Epic Records for the 2016 release of his third album, 3, which had a noticably poppier sound and featured guest appearances from the likes of Emeli Sandé, Saint Raymond, Lowell, and the peculiarly named Digital Farm Animals, who appeared on the infectious singles "Rio" and "Work It Out." ~ Andy Kellman
